DESCRIPTION
Enter was an American magazine produced from October 1983 to May 1985 by Children's Television Workshop (CTW, later renamed Sesame Workshop). Similar to sibling titles Sesame Street, The Electric Company, and 3-2-1 Contact magazines, the title was aimed at school-age children. The focus of the magazine was, as declared on the cover, "The world of computers and new technology". Each issue included programs in the BASIC computer language, which readers could type into their own home computer. Readers were introduced to technological innovations of the day, such as optical disc recording technology, which was new at the time.

Unlike other magazines produced by CTW, Enter did not tie into one of the television series produced by the organization. Perhaps for this reason, the magazine lasted only a few years. Beginning in June 1985, some of its features were folded into 3-2-1 Contact magazine, which printed computer programs as part of an "Enter section" for a short while. This section was later re-named "BASIC training."

Descriptions for these issues has been provided by Lewis Collard.
